Does the Chelsea Diner Have a Twin?

This is on Route 202 in Lebanon, Maine shortly after the NH/ME state line on the left (north) side fo the road, in the back corner of a diner parking lot (Dee's Diner, recently closed).  Seems to be used as a storage shed. 

Sorry for the poor picture quality, got them off Facebook because the quick photo I tried to take from my car was even worse.

How to Discard Syringes and Other Sharps

Zoning Administrator Brian Bannon sent along a flyer from the Vermont Department of Health with information about disposal of syringes. The text is below and the flyer PDF is attached so you can download, print out, and share. Thanks, Brian!

"How to Discard Syringes and Other Sharps

Vermont Department of Health
108 Cherry Street
PO Box 70
Burlington, VT 05402
800-464-4343 • HealthVermont.gov

Syringes, needles, lancets and other sharp items used to treat diabetes, allergies and other medical conditions are called sharps. Syringes and needles are also used to inject drugs of abuse. Sharps can be found where you don’t expect them – in a house, in a park, or on the street.

Why should I care about sharps?
